Book Review: My Husband the Stranger – Rebecca Done ***

Molly knew that Alex was the man for her as soon they met. He was kind, considerate and romantic. Everything that she wanted a partner to be. When he suffers devastating head injury their life is turned upside down. Alex has become a completely different person. An angry impatient man who barely seems to acknowledge Molly now.

My Husband the Stranger is an interesting book in that it makes you think about the things that you take for granted. The new Alex is aggressive and likes different things. He doesn’t understand why they now have financial issues.

The book is mainly told from two different points of view. Molly, in the present day, narrating her issues with her inconsiderate boss and the much changed Alex. The other chapters are the old Alex, from the day when he first met Molly right up the day that changed everything. The day of the accident.

It is a very engrossing story if a little predictable at times. I had worked out most of the plot twists in advance but it is still a good solid thriller with interesting characters.

I love sharing my favourite books with friends - nearly always spoiler-free as I hate reading a synopsis of the whole book in other reviews.
